|JNN082 Les draps et la plinthe - Achnn|
The illustrous French duo aka Fred and Anne or better known as Achnn return once again to Just not Normal with a full fledged album. Seven tracks that immediately gnaw at the core of your brain with a lot of recognizable acoustic sounds but treated and placed in such a way that soon you’d imagine yourself in a Lynch world of excitement and tension. One might at times even think to hear the great electronic experimentalists from the 50’s and 60’s in these pieces, making this album a timeles...

|Particle - Phillip Wilkerson|
There was an interview the other day in which, if I remember correctly Phillip stated that he was going to concentrate less on the experimental free releases. Well since you are reading these words here you are clearly recognizing that the great Phillip Wilkerson has yet done it again. Right before your eyes is the latest experimental release from Phillip that can be regarded as a blessing for your wanton ears...

|JNN028 Dot Seq Livies Podcaszzs - v4w.enko|
Live recordings from digital algorhythms. This is generative glitch that walks the far boarders of experimentalism, yet its content is so smooth and delicious. Meandering between the likes of Xenakis and Ikeda, this takes on a journey of its own. And even though this may be the shortest release on Just not Normal, I fell deeply in love with this album; beware as you may too!

|JNN063 Minds and Machines - Fosel|
minds and machines. this is existential combat. to make order where nothing but the faint line of the possible wrinkled perception. the process is as follows -- tracks like stabs of meat and protein put down with a midi controller or randomly devised by generative software and flung into ableton live. this is where the fun begins. switching in and out and out and in with soft synths until a netherworld forms like a radio transmission twenty kilometers below the surface in some fantastic and yet ...

|JNN038 Logic, Beauty & Chaos - Bob Dickinson|
The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces ...
